Goofs

When the famous Lutine bell is stolen, the officers at HQ describe it as weighing about a hundred pounds, and difficult but not impossible for a man to move around, yet in the scene at the finish line, we get a quick glimpse of Tracy Reed, herself probably not much more than that, scooping it up effortlessly in the scramble.

They Weren't
26 August 2001 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Smashingly funny and character driven film with a scavenger hunt leading to the stealing of the Lord's of London bell. Shown primarily as a second biller in the 60s, at least in the US, and hasn't been seen much since. An all-around-good flick (Laurie "Avengers" Johnson did the music) with a bit of Richard Lester vibe.
